Center of Aerodynamic Pressure. The point on a rocket where stability-restoring forces due to airflow against the back part of the rocket fins, etc. The location of this point depends on the rocket’s orientation at the time of measurement. If it is at a very small angle to the “local wind” line of flight , the fins’ restoring contribution will be large, while the nose’s disturbing contribution will be small, resulting in a CP that is way back. The CP in this case can be located using the Barrowman Equations. If the rocket is nearly sideways, the CP will be much more forward. The CP in this case can be located by balancing a cardboard silhouette of the rocket. Since all free bodies can rotate only on their center of mass, stability is usually a simple matter of placing your CG ahead of your CP, which ensures that the restoring forces of airflow on the rear of the model will always overcome the disturbing forces on the front. A good rule of thumb for sport models both high and low power is to design the rocket with the CP one or two body diameters behind the CG. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
For those of us genuinely searching for that “one special woman” Elena restores a lot of lost faith that we may actually be able to do this without losing a fortune and getting a broken heart in the process! USA Thanks for all of your information, particularly the scam warnings.

Antique Terms (A) The Antique Marks Glossary featuring antique terms beginning with A. Covering everything from Acanthus to Ayrshire and Air Twist to Art Deco.
Welcome to the Gotheborg. The field of Asian Ceramics collecting is a challenging one. Not the least due to the large number of terms of various origins, problem compounded by a variety of spellings and transcriptions. Many terms in particular regarding porcelain exported to the west are made up by collectors and dealers over the last century, and are not recognized or even understood in China.
When possible I have tried to address this by cross referencing both terms and explain where the understanding differ. Names, meanings and categories also change depending on new discoveries, which might not be as helpful as it might seem. Too myopic classifications might just complicate matters. Here I try to go back to the roots and explain why an older but somewhat incorrect name might still be more helpful than a modern but archaeologically correct name.
Many names and terms that are Chinese in origin have been transcribed in western characters. In old books this was often done by a system called Wade-Giles Peking, Ching-te-chen, Chien-lung , while all modern books today use a system called Pinjin Beijing, Jingdezhen, Qianlong. Naturally this causes some confusion. In this dictionary I have over the last decades tried to write and collect good explanations of many of these various terms that are used to describe antique Chinese and Japanese porcelain.
By and by I add to and revise the entries when I find simple and straightforward explanation, and illustrations of things. In this the Gotheborg.
